|C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.|
| There is but one virtuethe eternal sacrifice of self.|
| Self-abnegation is a trait most often seen in women, rarely in men.|
| He who is wise puts aside all claims which may dissipate his attention, and confining himself to one branch excels in that.|
| The essence of true nobility is neglect of self. Let the thought of self pass in, and the beauty of great action is gone, like the bloom from a soiled flower.|
| The secret of being loved is in being lovely; and the secret of being lovely is in being unselfish.|
J. C. Holland.
